Is Event Hospitality & Entertainment under- or over-valued?
Valuing Event Hospitality & Entertainment stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Event Hospitality & Entertainment 's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.

That's relatively low compared to, say, the P/E ratio for the ASX over the 12 months to December 2019 (32.14). The low P/E ratio could mean that investors are pessimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're under-valued.

Event Hospitality & Entertainment share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 57.63% of net profits
Recently Event Hospitality & Entertainment has paid out, on average, around 57.63% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.77% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Event Hospitality & Entertainment shareholders could enjoy a 3.77% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Event Hospitality & Entertainment 's case, that would currently equate to about A$0.34 per share.
Event Hospitality & Entertainment 's payout ratio would broadly be considered high, and as such this stock could appeal to those looking to generate an income. Bear in mind however that companies should normally also look to re-invest a decent amount of net profits to ensure future growth.
The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 13 September 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Event Hospitality & Entertainment 's shares ever split?
Event Hospitality & Entertainment 's shares were split on a 1.0589:1 basis on 6 November 2009. So if you had owned 1 share the day before the split, the next day you would own 1.0589 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Event Hospitality & Entertainment shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 5.6% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Event Hospitality & Entertainment shares which in turn could have impacted Event Hospitality & Entertainment 's share price.
Event Hospitality & Entertainment share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Event Hospitality & Entertainment 's shares have ranged in value from as little as $10 up to $14.5299. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta measures a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (AU average) beta is 1, while Event Hospitality & Entertainment 's is 1.03. This would suggest that Event Hospitality & Entertainment 's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
